Make your own way to the Cairns marina to board your deluxe 2-masted schooner for the sail to Green Island, located on the Great Barrier Reef only 16 miles (26 kilometers) from Cairns. The spacious 54-foot (16.5-meter) sailboat is stocked with complimentary tea, coffee, muffins, and fruit for your morning tea. If interested, learn some sailing skills from the crew as you motor-sail to Green Island.
Stop at Pinnacle Reef, just off Green Island, for snorkeling or scuba diving at this underwater paradise. Around midday, the crew serves your buffet lunch onboard the boat, then transfers you by dinghy to Green Island. There, have time to enjoy the beach or visit attractions like Marineland Melanesia.
After plenty of time at the Great Barrier Reef, sail back to Cairns. Your onboard afternoon tea includes a glass of Australian sparkling wine to top off your tour.
